Dear Chief Executive, please reduce the excessive car parking charges so that they are affordable for hospital visitors who are often elderly and disabled, and their visits do so much for those in hospital.

Why is this important?

So that people can visit their friends and relatives in hospital, or stay with them for check ups, and not have to pay excessive car parking charges that they can ill-afford.

How it will be delivered

In person to the Trust Chief Executive, with press invited.

Reasons for signing

  • Pauline S. 2014-04-23 12:15:05 -0400
    I see elderly people, visiting relatives and being charged half their pension to do it. A disgrace to charge those most vulnerable such a high price.
  • Timm F. 2014-04-21 16:43:56 -0400
    it is outrageous to profiteer from the illness and sickness of people.
  • Vicky H. 2014-03-13 06:20:53 -0400
    Worrying about the cost of car parking is an unnecessary pressure on families at a particularly stressful time in their lives. Show some compassion!

Hi, please can you do all you can to forward this petition to friends and family - I need 100 signatures and have 28 at the moment. As one signer said " Recently, having attended hospital at the request of the paramedics who were taking my elderly aunt in, she suffers from dementia. I was at her side with doctors and technicians for over four hours and when I was eventually able to leave I was charged £12.50 on the car park. Totally excessive and simply a high profit cash cow for the PFI share holders."
Thank you! Amanda

Hi, thanks to all for signing the petition about excessive car parking charges at hospitals - in particular the Hereford County hospital (or Wye Valley Trust) - I have sent an FOI request to find out a lot more about the contract that is in place - when it's up for renewal, how much profit is made, and who makes the decision about the contract. Will keep you all posted! Meantime, please send the link to friends and ask them to sign! We have to stop this really awful practice. People power can do it. Thank you.
